Antique Potato Spud Metal Toy Gun Weapon

Rare EJ Cossman number 504 SpudGun circa 1955. It is in GREAT shape for its age. How it works: You push the end of this gun into a potato, then pull the trigger and the potatoe piece shoots out the end. The spud gun was produced by E. Joseph Cossman who was also the inventor of the ant farm, & the plastic shrunken head among other things. He was also the original pioneer of the TV infomercial. EJ Cossman took advantage of one of the largest potato surplus' that this country ever had by touting the sales of the "spud gun" would solve their economic problems (the public would start buying more potatoes). He managed to get himself major publicity (and arrested) when he had tons of potatoes dumped at his doorstep in preparation for new demand for SPUD AMMO. This is a highly collectible antique toy gun which you won't see on auction very often. So, take advantage now.
